How I Spent My Weekend

Between blowing my nose, sleeping, eating, and knitting, I spent most of my time this weekend playing The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. I’d link to the game directly, but all gaming-related sites are blocked from our work servers, so you’ll just have to search for it yourself. Friday night and I went to Best Buy and I picked up that little gem for my DS as well as an old version of Mario Brothers (don’t ask which one – I don’t know, and it doesn’t really mean that much to me). I was unsure about Zelda, because all of the video games I’ve played have either been puzzles (like Tetris and Dr Mario) or action (Mario Brothers, of which I enjoyed most of the brand new one, except that World 8 is super hard and I decided I didn’t feel the need to torture myself and finish it). Zelda is different. Sure, there’s some action – some killing of monsters and the like – but a lot of it is questing and searching to find things and figuring out stuff. Well, needless to say, my worry over spending the $35 (which generously offered to give me and he’d play the game if I decided I didn’t like it) was for naught. I got almost nothing else done over the long weekend. No laundry. Almost no cleaning. It’s sad, really. But I’m enjoying myself, so that’s good. And I did get my week’s worth of homework done last night, so I haven’t totally lost touch with reality.

There could be a long post with pictures coming, but for the time being, let me recommend the following:

  • for the friend who recently admitted her love for owls, Etsy. I know you’re already familiar with the site, , but as I was perusing the “vintage” category, I found more owl stuff than I could ever get you. And seeing as how it’s about 6 months too early to start buying you birthday or Christmas gifts, I’ll just have to recommend you get yourself over there.
  • for the friend who’s remodeling her kitchen, Organized Living. I did a quick perusal and found their section of drawer liners, , so you should be set there. They probably have cutting boards as well. I can’t remember what else you were looking for, but they probably have it. Oh, and I found salt and pepper shakers you should get over on Etsy.

So there you have it. Nothing much of substance, but what did you expect?
